I have noticed that when I have turbulence, it usually stays with me for at least 50nm. In real life, when I have turbulence, it will only occur for about 5-10minutes and then the ride will be smooth again. I don’t think they climb above or below turbulence every time they have it so why does it last so long in infinite flight?
it’s the jetstream, if your flying in an area with light winds you’ll recieve minimal turbulence
Maybe I should use SimBrief more because it seems to usually take me around turbulence so I’ll se what happens on my flight to Skiathos today. :)
i suggest you look at winds online and you can determine if you’ll get any strong tailwinds/headwinds
there’s strong jetstream around greece lmao
lol That explains the gusting winds in Mykonos the other day.
Where can I see the winds online?
yeah, winds are strong over the atlantic as always and over midland us. Expect strong tailwinds around maybe italy and probaby all the way till your destination. using simbrief will choose the fastest route available which sometimes does mean taking the jetstream. It does make you get to your destination 20-30 minutes earlier though
windy.com is one
if you want too look at jetstreams just type in jetsreams world and you can see the jetstreams
Ok! Did you say its windy in the midlands? Like in England.
but as of now as you can see the winds are heading down onto greece, which means tailwinds for you
That’s good. I like arriving early. But not too early because it almost feels unrealistic lol.
it’s realistic, like a while ago a virgin atlantic plane flew 801mph due to jetstream
got from lax to lhr an hour early
Oh wow. About a year a go, due to a storm, a British Airways 747 managed to get from LHR-JFK in 4hr 55min! There must have been a strong tail wind!
The way commercial airlines in the real world deal with prolonged turbulence in cruise is by slowing down by M0.02-0.04. You often see an A330 flying at M.78 (when its most fuel-efficient cruise speed is M.82) because it’s more comfortable for the passengers. Try it out in Infinite Flight, I’m guessing you’ll see a similar effect.
That might be to avoid exceeding Vmo actually. Also LRC speed is not most efficient.
